Industrial Parts Cleaning Systems Capabilities:

Modern Engineering

Using the latest 3D and 2D design technologies and engineering talent, ACT is committed to creating high-performance system solutions, creating the most efficient and cost-effective machinery for your manufacturing, remanufacturing or overhaul facility. We are leaders in designing systems that include parts washers, passivation, paint stripping, flush stands, ultrasonics, custom baskets and fixtures, as well as prototype development, metal fabrication and machine shop services. We also specialize in designing and integrating material handling, automated load transfer, and robotic pick and place within your structural parameters and space, maximizing throughput with minimal handling. 

Metal Fabrication

With more than 25,000 square feet dedicated to in-house manufacturing and fabrication, ACT has the resources to create customized systems based on company requirements. First, metal is CNC sheared, broken on CNC press brakes or cut on CNC plasma systems, then artisan TIG and MIG welders fabricate and construct close tolerance and exacting systems based upon fabrication specifications. Exotic metals and plastic are regularly machined in CNC mills and manual lathes to create parts for our own production machines, as well as for outside customers needing prototype, reverse engineering and/or production machine shop services.

Electrical and Programming Department

As data logging and interfacing with plant IT systems are becoming more routine, today’s cleaning system is not only required to deliver more than just a clean part, but also record process data by part or load and make that available for future reference. Using a multi-stage system with PLC programming and formulas pre-entered by part ID, parts are more effectively processed and system ROI is significantly increased. At ACT, our electrical and programming department use Allen-Bradley, Idec, National Instruments and other high-technology software that allows us to create intuitive HMI displays with alerts and notifications, real time stage conditions, and accessible via IP address.

Full Turnkey Site Support

ACT was built on a strong tradition of servicing every system sold, and quickly morphed into providing full- and partial-turnkey installation services for our clients. When we design a turnkey support plan for a unique project, our ACT team of specialists evaluate your space, utilities, rigging and other facility details, ensuring your cleaning system is designed and built based on your company needs and requirements. We also offer preventative maintenance plans tailored to usage and customer needs. Our customer service teams have years of experience and are with you through every step of the process, traveling to nearly all continents for system installation support and oversight, as well as training seminars to ensure that the highest levels of support are always provided. Our number one priority at ACT is to get your cleaning system validated and into production quickly and efficiently and running smoothly for decades to come.
